Iranian officials are threatening to sink U.S. warships and destroy Israel, signaling a new round of escalation in nuclear tensions.
Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Cmdr. Hossein Nejat said earlier on Tuesday that “American bases are within the range of our missiles. … Our missiles will destroy their aircraft carriers if they make a mistake. Americans are very well aware of the consequences of a military confrontation with Iran.”
This follows an earlier sermon by Ayatollah Movahedi, a member of Iran’s Assembly of Experts and Expediency Council explicitly where he explicitly mentioned the option of attacking Israel. In his Friday sermon in Tehran on Friday Ayatollah Movahedi said that if Iran wants to attack a country like Israel “because of America’s crimes,” it can simply launch conventional missiles at Israel’s nuclear reactor in Dimona. Israel will then be “razed dozens of times” over by the “200 nuclear bombs that are in its possession,” said Movahedi.
He warned America: “You must remember that you live in a glass house, and you need to be careful not to throw [stones] at your neighbors.” He also threatened that the waters of the Persian Gulf would “turn red” if Iran is attacked.
The audience chanted: “Allah Akbar! Khamenei is the leader! Death to those who oppose the Rule of the Jurisprudent! Death to America! Death to England! … Death to Israel!”
